While the Singleton Law Group primarily handles cases in the area of labor and employment and intellectual property, we also take on matters in other areas of law working with other attorneys and law firms.

Working with other firms allows us to make sure that you are getting someone qualified in the area of law and that they will be working with our office to insure your satisfaction. Thus, should you need help with personal injury, workers compensation and medical malpractice, family and domestic relations, criminal defense and traffic (DWI) and white collar crimes, real estate and debt collections, we will be able to provide legal assistance working with other counsel outside our firm.

In the event that need help, we ask that you first ask to talk with Mr. Singleton or one of his paralegals so that he can best determine whether we can handle your matter personally or working with another firm.  It is only through that process that we can insure that regardless of attorney, Mr. Singleton would continue to be involved in and directly supervise the attorney handling your case.
